Emery youth decorate Veteran's graves

Staff writer

Veteran's graves in Emery receive a Christmas Wreath from Live Earth.

Ninety four graves in the Emery City Cemetery received their Christmas wreath. These graves are where veterans of the military from Emery are laid to rest. Dave Taylor purchased the live pine bough wreaths and the youth city council located the graves and placed the wreaths on Dec. 12.

McKoy Christiansen, an Emery cub scout, performed a flag ceremony to begin the wreath placement, and served cookies and hot chocolate to the chilled youth council following the placement of the wreaths. Wyatt Payne and Kyle Jones assisted Christiansen with the flag ceremony.

Members of the Emery Youth City Council place the pine wreaths on graves of Emery Veterans.
